We continue mini-reviews of cool catamarans! Next in line is ITA 14.99 - a cool cruiser that will definitely expand the horizons of your consciousness!
ITA 14.99 is a boat with excellent driving characteristics and high build quality. Lovers of cruises and long crossings will not remain indifferent. But what is this boat good for?
Design by ITA 14.99
Designer François Perus and his Yacht Design Collective have succeeded in creating a catchy design and shaping the yacht's identity. The Yacht Design Collective has worked with brands such as Catana and North Wind.
ITA Catamarans is a relatively new brand. Despite this, the team that created ITA 14.99 in shipbuilding is not the first year. Almost everyone involved in the creation of a yacht has more than one year of experience in the industry and understands what is needed for an ideal cruiser.
What can be said for sure is that ITA 14.99 has a downright “Italian” spirit in everything. The beautiful finish and functional design of the entire multihull are all about Italians. That is, every detail is in its place!
Driving performance ITA 14.99
The first catamaran ITA 14.99 was launched three years ago. Due to the fact that the hull is composed of composite materials, as well as epoxy glass E-glass with carbon reinforcement, the weight of the boat does not exceed 10.5 tons. The shipyard, by the way, offers not only such a complete set of the hull, but also hybrid models.
The result is an elegant yacht with a stylish hull profile and sleek, sleek cockpit. Two rudder feathers are located on the aft coaming. This made it possible to increase the free space in the cockpit. And the stability of the yacht was not affected!
The bow is designed to provide additional waterline length. This helps in optimizing weight distribution and body load during acceleration. The lower part of both hulls is perfectly balanced and well reinforced - there is no point in worrying about the safety of the hull!
Features of ITA 14.99
Other advantages that have become known from press releases are the ability to go to the most remote corners of the planet. Due to the slight precipitation, sudden drying will not be a problem!
Due to the flatter lines in the outlines of the stern, the yacht is able to glide easily at speed. The rigging and rigging are also of a high standard.
In addition, the hull of the catamaran was made using high-tech multi-layer foam with the addition of carbon fiber. Thanks to this, this multihull is lighter than its “brothers”.
